It's Friday and I'm ready for the long weekend ahead. No big plans for me, but those are sometimes the best long weekends.  I wanted to share with you some favorite handmade finds. It's a mix of geometric and minimal designs. I would love to have that bench in my studio space, wouldn't you?

Have a great weekend!

Next up for my spring interior design reboot is the living room - a continuation of my post from Monday titled SPRING :: ENTRY DECOR.   I started with a search for a new couch and when I found the refurnished pair of MID CENTURY ARM CHAIRS, I was hooked!  The gorgeous lines coupled with the beautiful white fabric just made my heart swoon and my interior designer heart go pitter patter.  I just knew I had to pair it with one of Jillian's fabulous COLOR BLOCK PILLOWS -  yummy, yum-yum right?  Once I had my signature pieces in place, I simply added to my core design and - voila!  A modern, yet colorful and inviting living room space is on the way!

While scrolling through instagram the last couple of weeks, I've noticed lots of adorable room decor for children. I was really inspired by the bold colors,  so I went searching for my favorites to share with you.  From colorful feather garlands to fun flags and banners and poms- color is key.  When decorating your child's room don't be afraid to go bold and have fun!

Modern Home :: Our Passion

I remember coming across Amber's Etsy shop Red Tile Studio when I was getting ready to open our Etsy shop Pig and Fish back in the beginning of 2011.  Deb and I were pretty new to Etsy and would spend hours looking at all the beautiful shops run by such a variety of creative people.  When we found Red Tile Studio, both the name and the bold and bright art block designs stayed with me so that when we officially met on Etsy - I knew exactly who Amber was!  (I've never shared this story with Amber, but yes Amber...I had my eye on you!)  It was in April of 2011 that we started working together on Elite16 and even though we had never met in person - we had an instant bond.  

Over the years of working together, one of the ways in which we connect is through our love of all things modern - especially home decor.  I've been to visit Amber and her mom Darleen in Dallas, TX and both their homes could be featured in Dwell Magazine!  Amber is a natural when it comes to interior design and has a wonderful modern and minimal style.  That's why I always love seeing the new designs she comes up with for her shop!  Both of our Etsy shops focus on modern home designs and so it's clearly a passion for both of us.  

Inspired by our love of modern home decor, we decided to create a new page on the website where we could share our favorite styles!  Please welcome the NEW TRENDS section of the website!  We've added this new TRENDS tab to our navigation bar and currently have 2 sections - Modern Home and Gifts Under $30!  It's a great place for us to curate a look and highlight the many beautiful finds we have in our massive inventory of Etsy favorites!

Enjoy!
